After a period of silence, Toei Animation recently revealed the first information about the new release schedule of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.
Dragon Ball Super Super Hero is an upcoming action/adventure anime series produced by Toei Animation and conceptualized by Dragon Ball series creator Akira Toriyama. This is the fourth film produced with the direct participation of Toriyama and also the second to carry the Dragon Ball Super franchise. The movie Super Hero was originally scheduled to release in Japan on April 22, 2022 but was postponed due to a hack at Toei Animation.
Not long ago, Toei Animation confirmed that their database had been hacked. Accordingly, an anonymous third party had unauthorized access to the company’s database, they were forced to stop the internal system to avoid being hacked into the data. This has directly affected the broadcast or delayed broadcast of the anime series it produces, including: One Piece, Digimon Ghost Anime, Dragon Quest and Delicious Party Precure.
And the new movie is also directly affected after the break-in, causing the movie’s release date to change. Originally slated to release later this month in Japan, after the data breach, the new Dragon Ball Super movie has been delayed indefinitely and there is currently no indication of a new release date.

However, according to a new listing spotted by @Lms___ on Twitter (and spread by @DBSChronicles) from the latest License Global Magazine, Toei Animation is setting a release date of “Summer” for Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. That is, although the specific time of the movie’s release has not been determined, Toei has determined that Summer (from July to the end of September) is the time when the work will be released in theaters.
Previously, the expected release date of the work was April 22, 2022.
Original series creator Akira Toriyama was the original concept, wrote the script (including all the details of the dialogue) and drew the character designs for the film (changing the characters to their manga designs). instead of the design used in the anime). Many commented that the author invested in this film even more than his previous trilogy. Production on the film began prior to the release of Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Super Hero is also the first anime in the Dragon Ball series to apply 3D CGI in production.
